Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE FULL)
After several semesters of severe self-introspection, I have decided to have another go at this business, as I have grown tired of the bare walls of my manor. Threrefore, I have decided to follow the steps of respectable rock bands of past decades and fill my pockets while I bask in the glory of my past successes.
By the end of my previous run, I had lost certain touch of professionalism, which caused severe delay in the productive proccess. This time things will be by the book: A 5 7-spot queue has been implemented.

Unfortunately, that is not the only change. As you are aware, we are in troublesome times, economy-wise! Inflation runs rampant! Banks go bankrupt! All around financial mayhem! That's why I had to apply slight modifications to my price system:

+++ Bronze Class - 10,000 PoE +++



A simple portrait of your pirate, no background, nothing overtly complicated. You can be hanging out with your pet, striking some action poses and/or punching out some bad dudes, but better leave the novelty costumes, motorcycles or Hollywood sets at home.


+++ Silver Class - 15,000 PoE +++



Either a Bronze Class avatar with simple animation, or a full-blown action portrait. Battles, backgrounds, sunsets - whatever scene that can be fit inside the 150x150, 60k margins.


+++ Golden Class - 25,000 PoE +++



Either a Silver Class avatar with simple animation or a sucession of different drawings. Tell your own story! (Keep in mind that you're still under the 60k limit - more than three different pictures tend to be too much)

Additionally, if you think you know your photoshoops, .pings, .jay-pegs and .geefs, you can request your picture, of whatever complexity but no animation, in natural size (generally around 600x600 pixels) and fashion it yourself into standard avatar size. A natural-size picture costs 10,000 PoE and does not include an avatar-size version.

Payments are taken in Midnight - in any other ocean the price is doubled.

To maintain transparence in the process, I advice you to state your request in this thread - Do not send me PMs with your request unless you want to give further details on your avatar or make modifications to your request.

Orders completed on this run:

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour
Zomg! I want one!


uhm.. but which one and what in it??


Thinks...


Edit:

Okay.. so here is my portrait gallery. I currently have white curly hair, an eye patch and a hook. You can use any type of clothing, but please make them purple/black or purple/purple or purple/lavender (see a theme?) I'd also like my purple octo, Lila and my 2 kitties, Moushtie and Sunshine included. If you can, maybe incorporate the 2 OM dolls that I have, Eurydice and Apollo...

As for what sort of puzzles I like.. I like to gun, bilge, carp and sail, in that order. I like to play spades, sf, rumble and forage... but out of all of those, the best one I am at is forage.... soo maybe something with that?

If you have any questions or whatever... give me a hollar!

EDIT again: forgot to say what avatar class... how about a silver.

Taking a spot in the queue.

Editing in details:

Sometimes I wanna be a little girl and just play with all my CI-dollies, we have: Cult, Homi, Vargy, Effy, and because I'm an evil girl too sometimes I also have Bondaged Homi and Molested dollheads. Make the dolls different sizes please, I really like the Vargas Vanquisher, he could be the big baby-doll.

I want to be sitting on the ground in between the dolls, looking all happy and innocent and playing with them.

I look like this.

In the avatar I want to be wearing the following outfit: sleepingcap indigo, plain shirt indigo, patched pants white/indigo. Beaded fetish around my neck if that won't be too tiny and detailled. If it would look too cluttered, don't worry with it.

Background and other: I just want it all to be CI-related, you can add items/colors/views/whatever as you see fit to make it complete.


I think this would fall in the Silver Class. I'll be paying on Midnight, gonna try to catch you there (I'm on Veerle there). Contact me through PM if you need more details or if you want to arrange a time to pay you your fee.

Thx !

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour
So my pirate is named after a character in a tv show called Battlestar Galactica. I'd love to have an avatar that meshes my badass, sharp-shooting, spaceship fighter pilot namesake, with my noseless pirate that likes sailing, bilging, and rumbling.

Here is my portrait gallery, and these days I like to wear a black corset, black flare pants, and black fancy boots. But any clothing is fine, really.

Here is the ship that Starbuck flies, and I don't know, maybe it would work to have my pirate be in a spaceship? Or a spaceship on a sea battle board? I'm pretty flexible and will be happy with anything, but let me know if you need more specifics.

It's easiest to find me as Starbuck on Malachite, but I'll be paying on Midnight. Looks like this is a silver class one.

Thank you, I'm really excited!

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour
I'll take one!

I'll take a Silver Class avatar, unfortunately payment will be on Viridian.

Use this portrait (I'm the girl :P ) as reference. I would like to be pictured with my hands in the air preferably with a crazy expression of my face (and maybe with a pair of scissors in my hand? >_>). The clothes and colours in the portrait are fine, though instead of rag bottoms I would prefer flared pants (they conveniently died before the making of that portrait ;_;).

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour
I'll take the last spot! Editing in a few :D

Edit: Silver Class avvie, on Hunter, so thats 30k *gulp* ;)
Portrait here - Thats what I look like, i'm fine with those clothes except could it be black/aqua instead of black/green? Thanks, and please include my octo :)

Okay so I love Alchemistry so maybe i'm adding different potions to a cauldron and its bubbling (some animation). Maybe a kind of crazed/psycho expression on my face?

Background - Uh whatever suits! :) But maybe something dark and creepy?

So thats it I think, Cheers.

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE FULL)
I'm a bit confused as to whether I should wait for all five avatars to be done, or If I could actually post my avatar request right now and wait for my turn. What should I do? v_v

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE FULL)
I'm interested in avatar too.

I'll take a Silver Class avatar because I can pay only on Sage or Viridian (I have to keep it as low cost as possible - you know ;-) troublesome times etc.)

Fizz and Ikke have already received their awesome avatars so I suppose there should be two empty spots in your queue, aren't they? :-D

I will edit this post with details later.

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE FULL)
Indeed, I would rather like you to hold the requests until the queue is cleared. It's not that I'm being a diva, it's just that being cluttered with orders kind of FREAKS ME OUT a bit.

Also, starbuck's avatar is done. Working on anchovygirl's.

I love that one. Just one minor quibble - the image that Starbuck posted actually displayed two ships, one in front of another. Your avatar retains both ships. =)

I'm late on this one. Sorry!

I believe I will do two more rounds of avatars, although due to increased demand I've decided to add two more spots to the queue.

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE FULL)
I'd like to order three
First One
Portrait
Can I be drawn dreaming about an atlantean seahorse, pink octo, black/navy parrot and a black/rose snake? I have a brown monkey I'd like to be drawn trying to wake me up, I can be wearing the same outfit
Let me know if that's too complex xD
Not sure what category that fits under.

2nd One
I'd like to be drawn as an evil looking faery in a pretty corset and gown and laurel (black/atlantean)
I'd like pretty wings!!! The rest of the scene is up to u, maybe I can be up to no good?

3rd
I'd like to be drawn as a mermaid with a pretty tail holding onto a big seahorse for a ride, underwater pretty scenery.

I will pay what I have on midnight and the rest (yes I know it's double) on a dub ocean. Let me know if u need further details :)

Re: Avatars by Empanado - Limited Comeback Tour (QUEUE OPEN)
One for me please. I will edit this post later.

EDIT:
So generally I would like to have bronze class summer/vacation/tropic/hawaii/bermuda avatar. I don't want a background and I don't have idea for animation, but if you get some neat idea for simple animation on the way I'm willing to pay for silver class. Anyway, payment will be done on Viridian. I know there's still plenty of time before the summer, but I'm not sure if your avatar shoppe will still be open and if I won't go bankrupt by that time.

As you can see in the gallery, Merethif is a sort of balding old codger with graying hair, beard and an eye patch. If there were a YPP movie Merethif should be definitely played by Dakin Matthews.

This link shows the main idea for the clothing, but it should be mixed with pirate outfit in some way. White bermuda shorts could go better with buckled shoes than sandals (if visible on avatar). Hawaii shirt instead of flowers could have some fancy Jolly Rogers pattern in orange/red (or similar juicy colours). I don't have idea for a hat but maybe some white musketeer hat or brown tricorne would be fine... or maybe make it without a hat at all (the latter sounds like a best solution for me, but It's up to you). Some cursed chalice with Bahamas Mama in hand would be cool. Also there could be some sort of tourist suitcase with travel badges (one badge could looks like simplified version of Atlantean Explorer trophy and the other like Cursed Banner trophy). Generally feel free to use/don't use any of those ideas - I think you got the main concept behind this avatar. You can make whatever face expression and pose (sitting/standing/three quarter length/full length) you like but please keep in mind that Merethif is rather plump pirate with jovial and easy-going personality. A pirate version of Friar Tuck perhaps.
